I get carers in most mornings – they help with showering or washing and dressing. I’ve got my alarm if I ever need help at other times, I did need to press it once about a year ago.
My wife and I stopped the carers coming in a couple of mornings each week as we felt we were covered. The carers are all different but are mostly good – they are particularly good at shaving and dressing.
The only thing is that I need to hang about a bit in the morning, in my dressing gown, waiting for them. The carers come at my appointment time but the time itself is a bit late.
This time of year is hard with the ferries. Some carers come from the mainland and I feel they are always looking over their shoulder worrying about the ferry being cancelled and getting back home because of the weather.
